Will It Melt???

Saturday March 3

Glazes are compounds of chemicals that fired in a kiln, melt to create a glass coating that protects and makes the ware sanitary. All kinds of regularly used household materials have these same chemical components. Things like dish soap, salt, grass seed, dog food , etc will create a glaze. Explore what happens to your components when fired at 2200, and 2300 degrees. Make a total of 12 small vessels to contain the 6 things to melt you bring with you. If you are a pyro, this is the class for you!
